We had a fantastic morning with our special guest Michael Murphy, who raised our Active School Flag!

Michael took time out of his busy schedule to talk to each class in the school and signed plenty of autographs.

The children gave a demonstration of some of their activities.Michael was amazed and delighted to see such a range.

We thank him for coming to Drumfries and wish him well representing Ireland in Australia in the next few weeks.

A Message from the Student Council:

Hi everyone,

Here is an update of all the active things going on in our school at present.

The first thing we do every single morning from ten past nine to twenty past nine is Wake-Up-Shake-Up. We do lots of different exercises to music and we all really enjoy it!

We have playground leaders that play games with the junior room at small break every Tuesday and Thursday. We bring P.E equipment out to the yard every day. We bring out skipping ropes, hula- hoops, tennis rackets etc

Another thing we do that is very active is the Run Around Europe Challenge. By Halloween we hope to have ran 597 kilometres, which is from Dublin to London. Every Friday we take part in Active Fridays.  Our student council set up four different active activities on the yard. For the last five weeks we have been going swimming to Templemore Sports Complex. We have one more week left, we are all really enjoying it and everyone has improved so much!                                                                                                                      We have purchased new P.E equipment like new skipping ropes etc.

We have some very exciting news!!! Micheal Murphy is coming to raise our Active Flag on the 26th of October. It is a non- uniform day. You can wear the clothes that you wear to any active activities that you do outside of school.
